garage-gurus-logoUnderstanding that education and training are vital to the future of the North American auto care industry, Garage Gurus, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ technical education platform, has launched a new give-back program for 2017 in conjunction with the launch of its 2017 training catalog. During the months of October and November, company representatives will visit customers to offer advanced enrollment for 2017 technician training sessions at one of the 12 state-of-the-art Garage Gurus locations nationwide. When a customer reserves a week of technical training through this program, Federal-Mogul Motorparts will donate $200 to the local technical or vocational school of the customer’s choice in their name.

Located in major metropolitan centers through the U.S., Garage Gurus on-site training is within reach of tens of thousands of technicians, service writers, repair shop owners and parts professionals. Throughout 2017, additional training modules and classes, including test preparation courses for various ASE certifications and an increased number of evening and weekend classes, will be offered.

As they do, they will be helping ensure the next generation of repair technicians in their local communities.”
